For Tom, there’s nothing more important than standing up for the rights of someone who’s had their health or independence taken away from them.

I would highly recommend the Sinas Dramis Law Firm to anyone who has been a victim in an auto accident. I can't say enough about Steve and his entire team; Ted Larkin, Leah Boelkins, Heather Childs, Nancy Gibson and I'm sure there's many others who I never had a chance to interact with. The entire staff was always patient and professional.My husband was in a MVA 11/2018 and then again 6/2021. Both were due to negligent drivers (the other guys texting & reckless driving). My husband sustained a TBI. Steve and his staff were extremely patient with us during every step. Sometimes needing to be repetitive in their explanations for my husbands sake. My only regret was not contacting them sooner. In our almost 40 years of driving this was a first major accident for both of us and we were just going through the motions believing we paid for car insurance our whole lives nothing will be an issue, until they didn't want to pay for stuff and started treating us like we were doing something wrong. That was really hard to stomach.Steve and his staff are top-notch. Every call, text, and email was responded to in a timely manner. We never felt our questions were insignificant. Very personable. Real people. Very happy clients here.
Response from the owner: Margie, we can't thank you enough for your kind words, and recommendation of our law firm. Communication and ensuring our clients understand their legal rights is always a top priority for us. It's been a pleasure getting to know you despite the circumstances. Wishing you the best always, Steve and Staff!

Response from the owner: Chris, thank you for the kind words and recommendation of our law firm. It was nice getting to know you despite the circumstances in which we met. We wish you nothing but the best always. - Tom Sinas
My now 89 year-old mother was injured in a car accident 17 years ago and requires 24 hour care. She is one of the many catastrophically injured victims thrown off the cliff this year by the new no fault auto law, enacted in haste and secrecy by Michigan's "brilliant" lawmakers. Not even the case manager assigned by the insurance company could find agencies or caregivers willing to provide attendant care at the slashed-to-the-bottom reimbursement rates. I was left to negotiate contracts with the insurance company and the MCCA, so my mother does not have to go to a nursing home. Friend of a friend recommended Katie Tucker as the attorney who had experience with these issues. I did a lot of research of the new auto law on my own but I still had a lot of questions and uncertainties how to proceed. I don't have enough words of praise of the professionalism, expertise and kindness I experienced with Katie and her team. She was very generous with her time, going above and beyond just simple answers to my questions. Her expertise in the new law, the knowledge of court challenges filed and new legislations introduced, advice about possible outcomes and timelines and overall the behind-the-scene activities is just superior. Katie was always willing to provide additional information both by phone and email, prompt and dependable in all communications and welcoming any further questions I may have had. Through her expert advice she gave me invaluable tools and arguments to advance my case with the insurance adjuster. I am confident that without her help I would not accomplish the compromise that allows my mom to stay safely in her home. Katie Tucker and the Team, YOU ARE THE BEST!

Please join everyone at Sinas Dramis Law Firm in congratulating Tom on his recognition as a “Michigan Go-To Lawyer” in the field of negligence law!
